We have this rose planted just off our back deck to enjoy the very large and very double rose pink blooms. The bush has nice sturdy canes to hold up the large heavy blooms. Seems to have quite good repeat bloom and nicely fragrant blooms. The bush is 5 to 6 feet and has glossy large green leaves and has been hardy in our zone 5 climate. I have not noticed any disease over all the years it has been in our garden. Relatively thornless.
